Huxwolds European Vacation - AKA Auf Wiedersehen Bab (Oct 18) - COMPLETE

Huxwolds European Vacation - AKA Auf Wiedersehen Bab (Oct 18)
Intro & Index


Hello again - I'm back with another non-Florida adventure...

If you haven't met us before, we are the Huxwolds - Me, Ems (38), Rich (37-again) and Tom (14) and we love theme parks.



It all started with our Floziday adventures, then we gave PortAventura a try in 2017, then in 2018 we really got the coaster-bug and attempted to visit 13 parks for Tom's 13th year (trippie here). Spoiler alert - we only managed to do 11 parks .

This trippie forms part of that challenge, so I'll be linking these updates back into the "13 Park" one.

The plans for this adventure came about from watching many themeparkworldwide vlogs (other vloggers are available) - we considered quite a few locations / parks, and had originally planned to do this road-trip in August 18, but we had to put our plans on hold until October half-term.

We travelled Mon 29th October - Sat 3rd November, flying with Ryan Air from Manchester to Cologne.

It was very much a "wing-it" trip - we only had our flights and 3/5 hotels booked before we flew, we sorted the Travel Insurance (8.23 for a single-trip with Admiral) and Airport Parking (70.99 for Long Stay T1 & T3) on the Saturday, and didn't even book the hire car until we were in the airport hotel on Sunday night, as we were undecided whether just I'd be driving, or whether we'd be adding Rich to the policy - I'll fill in more details as I go along...

Days 0 & 1 - Sun 28th & Mon 29th Oct
Travel Days / Bruhl (Hotels 1 & 2)

Day 2 - Tues 30th Oct
Phantasialand / Bruhl

Day 3 - Weds 31st October
Attractiepark Toverland / Gelsenkirchen (Hotel 3)

Day 4 - Thurs 1st November
Movie Park Germany / Gelsenkirchen (Hotel 4)

Day 5 - Fri 2nd November
Gelsenkirchen / Haribo Factory Shop, Bonn / Cologne (Hotel 5)

Day 6 - Sat 3rd November
Coming Home

Summary and Future Plans

I hope you'll enjoy reading along with our adventures
